Zhangjiajie 1 - The Mountains

Google 'Zhangjiajie' you will find a lot of beautiful photographs of its vast scenery, mountains mostly, which usually are associated with the film "Avatar" (Wulingyuan Scenic Area). The area is now very touristy but its rawness is still evident. It is situated in the northwestern part of Hunan Province, China
